Forum: GratefulDead Subject: jboyayaur or whatever the F his name is

is a PUTZ. Every once and awhile I run across this nimwit and just have to scream out what a flippin idiot this guy is. Don't believe me? Go read his reviews. Dude should flunk a JR. High creative writing class. He makes Eddie Haskell sound sincere. And NOW he's reviewing DSO and if that aint bad enough he's giving them better reviews than the real band.

I remember running into his reviews a couple of years back, the jabroni reviewed practically every show from 87 so you can't help but come across them if your into that year. Bunch of worthless crap if you ask me.

Eddie did always sound sincere. Likewise Lumpy,Wally and the Beav. Here is my review of DSO "they suck".

Reviewer: Burnt Rich - - June 1, 2008
Subject: Too much information par usual, J-Boy.
Do we really need to hear that Victim or the Crime is one of your "sex" mix cuts, J-Boy?? This is your most absolute cringe-worthy bit of verbal flatulence, I have had the mixed pleasure of coming across as of yet! congratulations, you have thoroughly nauseated me on this fine spring morning!! Kudos, my friend! ;) For all you who wonder if J-Boy's reviews are their own proverbial "victim or the crime", this is one of the all-stars!! As for the music here......don't miss it!!

Thanks for all these insights...I still haven't gotten around to reading his primary literature, but all this secondary criticism is quite amusing...

This is just too good (BTW, his earliest shows are 74, so no wonder I've missed him)--I am serious, this is too funny to put down (try it):

"1st Set: "Bertha" mid-tempo but Garcia's grinding cutter guitar solo pleases. Nothing special about 'Mexicali' but good time fun...rather Jerry's carrying a strong line of tonal pleasures - at this point the polka wasn't as pointed as 80's arena versions...breezy yet skippable 'Don't Ease' Jerry's instrument is on so far...or it sounds real nice. Band ain't together on a nine or ten beat "Beat." Same commentary as before. Alright, my first 'Sugaree' since listening to the string of 07-31 through tonight. For any pretentious enough to create a lovemaking disc - I recommend the song for those soft, slinky evenings. As for the version, it's the song...nothing else but there on a 3 1/2 star plain so it's good listening. Of course we can't have a night without "Jack" it's better than 8/5, not as 8/4. Crowd's clapping along. Oh goodness, it's early for the first "Eyes" of the past three nights. And it's twenty minutes - they're breaking the mold tonight. Phil does some lovely work six-seven minutes in (I've got no timer - so it's all approximatin) The last few minutes are quite intricately involving - but it's not a definitive version...in fact I may like 7-31's better. The tune appears to end abruptly - Bobby says something about ??? and they go into a breezy, just fine "Promised." "Deal's" arranged well to be a stomper - it's good ol' GD. The second epic of the first set (here's bettin the second's lackluster on that front) "Playin" the song's not as strong as 8-4 but the jam quizzically probes...Jerry and Phil are in line with each other. I wish they would have continued to funk shit up around the seventeen minute mark like Jerry did with Restoration near the end of the decade. I'm not certain if 'Playin' remains unfinished or if it genuinely segues into 'Scarlet' If it is indeed the later, kudos as it's something rarified. There's something simplistically friendly/becoming/amiable/swingin about its beat that pleases. Donna's welcomingly active mid-way. Not filled with depth but enjoyable. We're all together enjoyin this novel experience as "Playin" (they extend the end by a good fifteen seconds so Dionyseus won't leave the Roosevelt.) returns to wrap up a very satisfying first set. No way they could top this.

2nd Set: People appear overwhelmed with kindness for the "UJB" opener. The perfect call - hopefully 'Seastones' didn't disturb the mindset. It wanders out into an uncertain forest - but do stay for the song. The rest of the show was discluded from the the DP #31 release...any reason why - let's see... Shit, some people are as ecstatic as me to hear "Black Peter." Were all the rules thrown out tonight? It's slow-burnin. Steady drummin and Keith's present, but the guitars and Jerr's voice lack energy. "El Paso" is nice - Bob then remarks that because the temperature keeps changing they need to tune up - once more. Some obnoxious young men are calling for St. Stephen even if they haven't played it in 18 months. Well, from the wise and well-educated to the slutty, "Loose Lucy." Pretty standard and a little sloppy. The "Big River" follows is like the others in the past week - hard-charging rock boogie. It's fine. "Ship" is nothing outstanding save some nice harmonies near the end. "Uncle" is decent and goes down easily. "Row's" a little dull as it develops its playfulness in later years. "Sugar" makes the crowd happy - is the show over? It's more contemplative than ecstatic. It's molds together jazzily - rather idisyncratic, hmmm... show ain't ending a repeat of "He's Gone" Simple execution equals success - campfire breakdown. Time for "Truckin" light and jazzy - in fact the sound of the second set closer resembles '73...Jerry's recovered the strength of his guitar. We're back aboard after unnecessary 'Paso to Jimmy.' It wants to celebrate the nighttime as it loses all drums shortly afterwards. The "Spanish Jam" remains compelling but won't fright you out of your socks. It seamlessly blends into "TOO" that completes the previous night's tease. One must imagine they're tired as it's not really exploding. Things get a little demented after the first verse...but it feels more concilliatory as the band too quickly blows their load. "GDTRFB" stumbles into a mild-mannered clap-along. "Sunshine" appropriately ends the set on a high note. Jerry thanks the crowd and strongly asserts that they're too much. The perfunctory cheery US Blues" follows.

Well, I see why the second set was barely included on the D release as it's lacking steam.

3 1/2 stars"

Discluded?? Honestly - I wish the guy would come by here. I'm ready to rumble.

How can you not love gems likes this one:

"It's molds together jazzily - rather idisyncratic"

It goes on and on! Amazing stuff--I suppose with all of us talking about him he just might show up; that would be something--I think!

However, though confident you could spend a life time assisting in the revisions (!!!), I am afraid that if took some word-smithing to heart we might not have much left to discuss...

''Anyways, while Jerry does a good job of maintaining the music's integrity, Brent provides the gusto disallowing the generic backbeats to interfere with my enjoyment.''

"Those playful chords of "China" delight all who dare to enter their warm confines. The fairy dust is flowing, but not enough to cause a growth of wings."

Brilliance.

Yeah, I really can't comment as my rare reviews are pretty lame and completely depending on my frame of mind at the exact moment - in other words I really lack objectivity.

At least jabaloney takes the time to actually write reviews.

I have found the entire Grateful Dead experience depends on state of mind whether sober enhanced good day bad day day night whatever. There are some shows I think that stand the test of objectivity though.

"At least jabaloney takes the time to actually write reviews. "

ah bullshit. Those aren't reviews they're verbal flatulence.

I'll say! If all the dude ever does is basically say that the band was never quite there, why doesn't he try a different era? I'd like to see him tear apart some of their most undeniably legendary runs/shows. I forgot all about this yahoo until I ran across another review recently so I decided to run thourgh a bunch of them and lo and behold he gives better reviews to a Dead COVER band. I would say he was retarded except he knows too many big words.

He may know big words, but does he know how to use them? Evidently not.

You kind of wonder why he doesn't stop by here and give us all the benefit of his insights. Now wouldn't that be fun ...

How ya doin' Rob ? I'm trying to knock up some sleeves for the pile of CDs that's threatening to take over my desk. But it may turn out to be a job that's better suited to the Xmas break. Bless Daliguana though - his contributions really help.

Track 12 from here would have sorted Scrooge out a lot quicker than visitations in the night. I wonder how jboyayaur would review that. http://www.archive.org/details/gd1971-12-14.sbd.cantor-orf.133.shnf

Hey there - I'm doing pretty much ok at the moment but I think I might be in for a recessionary kick in the gonads in the New Year - feels like it could be a bleak midwinter... Hope things are looking rosier for you.

Speaking of cds taking over the desk - I now have three boxes of the damn things under the desk. I keep promising myself I'm going to put them into some semblance of order but I never get around to it. I usually just reach in grab whatever comes to hand if I'm not sure what I want to listen to. Mind you, if I do know what I want to listen to it can be a right pain trying to find it.
